Join soprano, Kari Paludan, pianist, Wes McCune and Floyd PFLAG for “An Evening With Gershwin”. This cabaret-style song recital showcases the charm and humor that epitomize George and his brother, Ira, and includes many of their beloved favorites, some new takes on the classics and a few musical surprises. Called “a season highlight” and “delightful”, the show has bowed at the National Gallery of Art, the Harman Shakespeare Theater in Washington DC, the Illinois Governor’s mansion and in multiple venues up and down the East Coast. In it, Kari and Wes share the stories behind the songs and why the Gershwins are beloved by musicians and audiences throughout the world.
This benefit performance supports the annual Floyd PFLAG donation of 25 library books from the Rainbow List of the American Library Association to The Montgomery – Floyd Regional Library and helps fund the $1,000 scholarship for a high school senior in Floyd County exemplifying leadership for LGBT inclusion.
